krajowe eliminacje 2018 poll

Back at the start of February, we learned the ten acts competing in Poland’s Krajowe Eliminacje 2018. We’ve been waiting to hear all ten songs ever since. But today, with the release of Marta Galuszweka’s “Why Don’t We Go”, we finally have a full house!

The ten acts will all compete in Krajowe Eliminacje next weekend, on March 3. The winner will go on to represent Poland at Eurovision, following in the footsteps of Michal Szpak and Kasia Mos.

As always, Polish Eurovision fans are definitely excited by their selection. Amongst those competing this year are Isabell Otrebus, returning after finishing fourth in last year’s selection.

Marta Galuszewka was coached on The Voice by Poland’s 2016 star, Michal Szpak. There’s also plenty of hype surrounding Gromee feat. Lukas Meijer, with their song “Light Me Up”.

Gromee and Lukas have already had success in 2017 with their collaboration, “Without You”. Could they do the same in Krajowe Eliminacje?

But of course, it’s now up to you to decide who your favourite is. With all ten entries out, you can now vote in our poll. You’ll find links to all ten songs below:

Mmmm, some good songs for Poland this year, very high standard I think. My personal favourite being ‘ Don’t Let Go’.

Bart
Guest

This is TOP 3:
Light me up
Love is stronger
Delirium

I just don’t know the order

Still a lot is in jury hands, which can be tricky…

My choice: light me up: I hope they will have good stage performance 🙂

Zebb

Afroslavic realness though. Seems like a good competition.

I get the impression that people who prefer their usual professional chart-music get their kicks from Gromee and/or Otrebus, while people that look for something different might like Ifi or Happy Prince. Normally i tend to the latter, but even though i like “Love Is Stronger” and “Don’t Let Go”, i don’t love them (yet – hopefully this will change with the live performance). Saszan falls somewhat inbetween and i voted for her – don’t know why really, if it was about the look and polish vocals i’d also root for Maja …

Ewa

Go, go, go Ifi!!! You’ll get my voice girl!

AngieP

“Nie chce ciebie mniej”: Sounds modern. It’s radio friendly. “Momentum“: It’s a power ballad by a great vocalist. A bit flat however. The voice does all the work. “Delirium”: The word “delirium” sticks in your head and makes it memorable. Just an ok song. “Love is Stronger”: I like the production as well as the voices. The song itself seems messy and the lyrics are simple. “Krakowiacy i górale“: This sounds traditional. It’s fine. “Light Me Up”: I really like this one. Nice melody, love the chorus and the beat. “Why Don’t We Go”: Modern sound. Up-beat. Too many sounds… Read more »

Great vocalist Poland has a year ago and two years ago – I hope so this will make different choice and will pick one of this : Gromee (as first ) or Ifi or Isabell , but no Mementum, as thats sad ballad and doesnt work very well , as next ballad from one country…….

Jacob
Guest

The level of this year’s competition is a bit better.I keep my fingers crossed for Gromee. His song is very happy and I think it’s his time ? #teamGromee

Blue

Poles as always the most critical of themselves…

West
Guest

My top 5:
1. Happy Prince – “Don’t Let Go”
2. Ifi Ude – “Love is Stronger”
3. Maja Hyzy – “Skin”
4. Gromee feat. Lukas Meijer – “Light Me Up”
5. Monika Urlik – “Momentum”

Overall a good selection – I’ll watch the final (it helps that I understand polish at least a tiny bit).

Napaw

You know, two years in a row they postponed the announcement of the finalists of Krajowe Eliminacje. There’s apparently just too many entries. There should’ve been at least 7 decent songs then. And in the end, again, they present us this crap selection. Only Two songs that are worth talking about. At this point I have grown too attached to Delirium, but from what I see Gromee seems to be the next Michal Szpak. He has a gigantic fanbase that will vote for him. If that is the case then sadly I see the first non qualifier in 5 years.… Read more »

Don’t worry. Poland will be in the final 🙂

Napaw

I hope I’m wrong, and that is indeed the case.

Anna

The Ifi’s song is so so… strange, but I like it. This is my big discover this year.

Licia
Guest

Gromee is giving me ‘ I FEEL ALIVE’ ISRAEL 2017 vibes……everyone excited for an uptempo song and then…flop

portuguese fella

My favorites so far: Gromee(Poland), Estonia and Denmark.

portuguese fella

Gromee will win in Lisbon.

Purple Mask

I’m with Colin on this one. (No surprise there). There are three or four that could do well nationally, but there isn’t a “Flashlight” or a “Cool me down” that would guarantee Poland a qualification for the ESC final. At least not yet (revamps and live sensations might be yet to come).
There is potential for some creative staging here too. It might be a good national final to watch.
(Although, if I’m honest, I do miss Kasia Mos.)

Mary
Guest

I have completely different opinion – this year is better than previosu as w can listening in polish elimination quite various songs and new sounds – so we have big possibility Poland will not send this year ballad , but other type of song – what is very good message – as in previous years we had ballads and always listened Poland send ballad again……-(however it was so happy to have Kasia and Michal in previous years !) So I see this year will be different and I hope this will bring better luck !

Purple Mask
Guest

Sounds good. I like optimism. 🙂
Hopefully the national final will deliver. Have a good time.

Mary
Guest

Thank you @@@ I believe Polish Eurovision fans and watchers – expecting this year really something different and I hope this will bring in National Elimination @@@@

Mary
Guest

Gromee is the best – we hope so he will be in Lisbon !

Donit?
Guest

Only Ifi Ude, I also like Maja Hyzy 🙂

Mary
Guest

Gromee is the best @@@ I hope so they will be in Lisbon !!!!

Ewa
Guest

I felt in love with Ifi too!!!

Mary
Guest

however Ifi Ude is also very good and I think will be in top-3 in Polish Elimination this tear !

Skimur
Guest

I Like songs of Happy Prince, Maja Hyzy, Gromee feat. Lukas Meijer and Isabell Otrebus (but I swear I heard somewhere before that same chorus).

Jo
Guest

I didn’t know Poland was a former Swedish colony.

Mary
Guest

haha – but Gromee is from Poland Lukas from Sweden – Isabell part to part from poland and from Sweden !

Napaw
Guest

Isabell has Polish parents who moved to Sweden where she was born.

Ann
Guest

Isabell is Polish – her parents moved to Sweden. And Gromee is from Poland as well, as all other candidates (ok, Ifis father is from Nigeria).

daniel
Guest

#teamGromee the best song of Eurovision 2018

Kris
Guest

I don’t like Delirium at all!
I think Gromee ft Lukas has a current sound and will get high televotes which can make Poland reach final!
Why don’t we go and momentum are decent!
Love is stronger is unique
Song in polish is better than the last year’s one!

However none of them gripped me like voiceless or Only human did last year.

sg
Guest

Light Me Up is the best song out of these, y’all better vote for them

Colin
Guest
I usually avoid writing my first impressions, as my opinion can change after a few times of listening to a song. Thus, I hope there are growers in this list, cause after I listened to them all, I realized that 3 songs are good (but nowhere near as great as some of the already chosen entries that are wonderful), 4 songs are reasonably enjoyable, but don’t make a big impact, 1 song that has a nice beat, but is repetitive to the point of annoying, 1 song that is weak and dated and 1 song that is so incredibly bad… Read more »

Supposing it works live, “Love is Stronger” would be the obvious choice for me. It’s not awesome, but it’s the one that sounds like people making music and not record labels making money.

I also like Sazsan’s song. Maybe because it’s in polish, so at least it brings something different to my ears. “Delirium”, “Light Me Up” and “Skin” are all decent but it’s difficult to tell which is the most generic (“Light Me Up”, probably, by a nose). Marta’s song isn’t original either, but I really like her voice, so she would be my 3rd option.

ivy
Guest

Cant’t wait to Krajowe Eliminacje. We’ve got many good songs this year and really hard decision before us. Keep fingers crossed for Poland! 🙂

Daria
Guest

In my opinion only Ifi Ude is an interesting song, but people will vote for Gromee.

Daria
Guest

Ifi Udde has an intersting song 🙂

Daria
Guest

The problem is that Poland had many good and interesting songs as proposals, but jury made a bad choice. What a pity 🙁

Lex
Guest

Jury made a bad choice. Many of people wanted Clödie and “Go” in Krajowe Eliminacje.

Not impressed with Polish songs this year.

Polegend Godgarina
Guest

Just not Isabell please. Awful voice and a forgettable song.

Polyna
Guest

Most people in Poland stopped caring about Isabell after announcement of the participating songs. I guess the winner will be either Gal/uszewska or Gromee, with the possibility of another unexpected televote-topper like Carmell last year.

Mari(o)Vision
Guest

Very weak bunch of songs in Poland’s NF.
I don’t like almost any song of the 10.
The most favorable song of these songs is ”Don’t Let Go”.

Mari(o)Vision
Guest

Regret that i took the time to listen to Poland’s songs…
Most of them either suck or cause negative feelings to me.
I wasn’t displeased with just just a few of them only..
That’s why Poland is from my least liked countries in the ESC.

@ Poland : See ya next year…

Dominika
Guest

Will you make a reaction video on all songs ? 😀

Franck
Guest

We have no screaming women yet this year and we do not need one.
So Poland please be wise and don’t send Delirium. Anything but this

Pandaman
Guest
This year’s selection is so much worse than the previous year. To be completely honest, I don’t understand the hype around any of these songs. “Delirium” is just another bland, soulless, unoriginal radio-friendly song that you listen only to kill the silence. Same applies to “Light Me Up”. I was curious about the folk song, but “Krakowiacy i górale” sounds like a poor, unfunny joke entry. Most of the songs sound like a copy-paste of your typical, radio songs you won’t remember 15 minutes later. Horrible. I’d say two most “original” songs here are “Love Is Stronger” and “Don’t Let… Read more »

KE 2017 was amazing. Carmell and Lanberry were great.

Mo?e tak zamkniesz mord? i przestaniesz przynosi? wstyd Polsce? Albo chocia? nie pisz, ?e jeste? Polakiem.

Czilaut, pliz… that’s only his opinion.

Napaw

Czy s?ysza?e? ju? kiedy? o „Freedom of speech“?

Piotr
Guest

Sorry, but last year’s Krajowe Eliminacje were terrible.

Shaun
Guest

To be fair, all of those songs, bar the folky one, are far more current that the two dated pieces of crêpe Poland has chosen in the last two years. Maybe they are too radio oriented, but Eurovision also has to have some of that. It’s about variety, after all.

Joaquin
Guest

It’s either gromee or ifi.
I find Isabel’s voice really annoying – it grates on my ears and I can’t listen to her! If she wins it’s going to be a definite non qualification for Poland. Plus the song is meh anyway.

Vanessa
Guest

Gromee!

D
Guest

Very good national final Poland. My favourite is “Love Is Stronger”, it reminds me of a mix of Grimes and Björk, two of my favourite artists. The songs by Isabell, Saszan, and Marta are also really good. Don’t get the hype over “Light Me Up”, it’s radio friendly but very boring and expected.

poipik
Guest

Isabell Otrebus – Delirium will be 100% in Top 10 in May if the song get chosen. I can even say it could end in the Top 5

Briekimchi
Guest

A little high but I also like the song. More top 15 than top 5 though.

Napaw
Guest

It’s the only entry that can make it past the semis IMO.

Popo
Guest

Polish will hype their entry like every year. They are worse than spanish fans sometimes. None of these will reach top 10.

Popo
Guest

Delerium is horrible. Overhyped, wouldnt do well in the contest.

Mila
Guest

Well what’s wrong with being excited about one’s entry and supporting it? The contest without fans and all the hype around it would be boring 😉

Duchers
Guest

The thing is I can “hype” my country’s entry but also support dozen of songs from other countries so don’t know what’s wrong with that. We just know how to celebrate music and Eurovision mate! cheers

daniel
Guest

Popo just give me titles of songs of this year’s Eurovision that are better than “Light Me Up” or even “Delirium” (however I don’t like it so much).

Weißbrot
Guest

My top 3 is:
1.Love is stronger
2.Delirium
3.Light me up

The rest is kinda meh tbh….

Weißbrot
Guest

Delirium and Light me up aren’t that good either, but These are Songs that I didn’t imediatly turn off after the Chorus started… It’s 100% Love is stronger to me, but Delirium will win anyway. Good luck in the 2nd semi.

Kuna
Guest

This year I won’t listen to these songs
Remembering what we did with Rafa? last year (that was horrible), if we choose a really bad song, then I don’t want to know what the rest are
The only song I know is Delirium. It’s good, but not really a winner, possible not a qualifier, since we’re in the 2nd SF

Polyna
Guest

Lol @ Wiwibloggs readers voting for Otrebus-Larsson because it’s the only name they already know.

Safiya
Guest

I’m Polish and I’m very disappointed (but not surprised). I would say Gromee is my favorite, but I’m not really crazy about the song.

Bart
Guest

My favorite is internally selecting Margaret

Napaw
Guest

From now on we can only dream. That will never happen again.

mila
Guest

Guyyyss can we please get a video reaction? :))

Janro
Guest

Isabell Otrebus is my favourite here. I think she would be the wisest choice.

JEFFERSON LAMAS

das que gosto Delirium é a pior. Prefiro Saszan, cantando em polonês.

MrChomik

Only Gromee!
I like already Ifi and powerful Monika’s voice.
